Where: Wiltshire, England
This is a typically bucolic English village with a difference. Thanks to the Sarsen standing stones that cut a swathe right through it, Avebury is one of Britain's chief centres for paganism, wicca and druidry. The stones date back to around 2500 BC, the same time as nearby Stonehenge and Silbury- Europe's largest prehistoric man-made hill at 130-ft tall. Getting to grips with the realities behind the mystery of the site is the very informative Alexander Keiller Museum. Entry is Â£4.20.
